Rush Limbaugh Explains Why Dem Convention’s A Disaster: “Personal Hatred For Trump” Makes Them Irrational

Rush Limbaugh dropped the hammer on the hapless Dem Party for their “disaster” of a convention.

Rush started, “Do not worry, ladies and gentlemen. I am not going to let the indictment of Steve Bannon distract me like it’s distracting everybody else from the disaster that was the Democrat convention last night. That is exactly what it was. It was dark and dank, uninspiring, nothing uplifting about it whatsoever. It was deeply personal.

It was obvious that the people on the Democrat side are so poisoned with personal hatred for Donald Trump that they have lost every bit of rationality. They have lost every bit of reason for what it is that they are trying to accomplish. I was watching in amazement last night. It was so bad last night that I was thinking it would be difficult to describe for people who didn’t see it, how bad it was.


But of course, if there’s anybody up to that task, if there’s anybody up to that challenge, it is I, your host, El Rushbo. By the way, while the Democrat national convention TV ratings are plummeting, our ratings at are skyrocketing. Our traffic yesterday was up 65%, folks. Every day, we’re setting a new record for the number of subscribers to Thank you so much for that.

But we’re not losing. We’re not losing radio ratings. We’re not losing audience. People are not tuning out of the streaming (either the audio or the Dittocam), and yesterday it was up 65%. There are a couple interesting stories about why the networks are covering so little of the Democrat convention. The broadcast networks are basically spending an hour a night, which is basically what they have been doing.

But they’re not going wall-to-wall with the hour. They’re butting in and butting out and they’re giving a lot of time to their own commentators. And you know what a lot of networks are doing? They’re making you go to their streaming sites if you want to watch wall-to-wall Democrat convention. They’re not televising it.

There’s a reason. Do you know what it is? It’s funny as hell. They’re scared to death that if they spend the amount of time on the Democrat convention that they actually want to spend, that they will then be obligated to give the Trump the same time amount of time next week, and they don’t want to. They don’t want to give Trump any time next week.

They don’t want to give Trump certainly any more time. The next thing they’re worried about, is they know full how disastrous a television show this convention has been. Did you see last night? If you watched this, this was the strangest ending to a speech. I thought the Kamala Harris speech, the Obama… Look, both of them. I’m gonna get into detailed analyses here just in time.

Both of them were just utter disasters. The Kamala Harris speech particularly was worthless. It’s hard to describe it. It’s impossible to praise whoever it is that decided to position her the way they did, to dress her the way they did last night. After her speech was over, the only people who were seen were women. It is patently obvious, ladies and gentlemen: The Democrat Party is making a full-fledged pitch and effort going after women.

They think suburban women, they think that’s Twitter. They think they hate Trump, and that’s what they are banking on, and accidentally going all-in. And they had to make it look like there was a crowd of people watching last night on their Zoom display. They put duplicates in the boxes. There was one woman in two boxes, another woman in another two boxes.

They made it look like they didn’t have enough people to fill out the Zoom box. Now, they clearly could have found enough people to fill out the Zoom box. They just didn’t. They didn’t even make the effort, and people were looking at this and start-stoping, and looking…”

Rush said, “…Now, I spent some time yesterday on Kamala Harris. She’s a very complicated figure here, and I need make a minor adjustment to a point that I made yesterday. I repeatedly illustrated for you how poorly she performed in the Democrat primary. She was the first out. She got out before there was a vote cast.

She got out when the money ran out. She was the worst performing of all the 20-plus candidates seeking the Democrat nomination. And then I made the observation, “That’s the person they pick? They pick the person who is in line to be president?” That’s what being Biden’s vice-presidential nominee means. It means that you’re gonna be president sooner or later, if Biden wins.

So they pick somebody who the Democrat Party wouldn’t even nominate. They pick somebody who was all over the place. “Biden’s a racist. Biden’s a pig. Biden’s fried bacon. Biden’s fried pig. I believe the women. Biden’s a serial rapist. Biden’s…” They pick this woman? What I forgot to point out is: Yeah, remember who’s doing the picking here….

“Rasmussen Report daily tracking poll sponsored by Liberty Nation for Thursday shows that 51% of likely voters approve of Trump’s job performance.” This is not good — 51%. Biden cannot stay hidden in the basement when Trump, in Rasmussen, crosses 50%. In the other polls, the numbers are 45%. If Trump goes 45% or better, then it’s bad for Biden — and in this one it’s 51%, ’cause they don’t believe Rasmussen.

They think Rasmussen’s a Republican-oriented poll. (interruption) No, what? (interruption) No, no. (ahem) No. I didn’t finish my point. Back to the convention television schedule. They have limited the Democrat convention televised schedule because they don’t want to have to give Trump any more time than they gave the Democrats. They don’t want to even have to give Trump the exact amount of time they gave the Democrats.

It’s been a really tough thing for them. They’ve seen the ratings just fade away into invisibility. They have seen the excitement every day dampen and plummet, and they’re admitting that it’s been tough. They haven’t wanted to spend a lot of time here because it just means they’d have to give Trump the same amount of time. But there’s another factor. There’s another factor.

And that is, they don’t know what Trump is gonna do. Trump is not gonna telegraph for the television networks what he’s gonna do, what the Republican convention is gonna be. They are really worried that the Republicans are gonna put on a good show, whereas the Democrats have not. The Democrats have been Mad Max and Thunderdome.

The Democrats have been… There’s no reason to live. The Democrats have been dystopianism on parade, and so the networks are afraid and the pro-Biden, pro-Democrat media is afraid that the Republicans are gonna have some live events, meaning drama. They’re gonna have some live actual reaction, that there will be much less on tape that can be previewed.

So they’re worried that the Republicans are gonna put on a much better, more entertaining show, that more and more people are going to watch and are going to want to watch — and, frankly, it’d be hard not to, given how badly this convention has been put on. So stop and think of this. The Democrat media has been totally in a defensive posture all week.

Normally, they would want to just spend as much time as possible, and they would want personal interest stories left and right. They would want to use this week to make Biden and everybody in the Democrat Party look like angelic gods, and it hasn’t happened. It’s gone the exact opposite way. And so now they’re having to talk about limiting the amount of TV time they give the Democrats because they can’t give any more time to Trump because they know it’d be disastrous for them.

Trump is gonna outperform.

They know this.

They’re very, very concerned about it, folks.”
